DOWNLOAD: Soul Clap, "Great White Hope Vol. 3" (mp3)
Charlie and Eli’s Soul Clap house parties have been destroying bars for a couple of years now, but they just got around to putting out their 12-inch debut, “The Giraffe” (courtesy of AirDrop, and on yellow vinyl, no less!). Soft-footed, veldt-snooping vloops! of melody frame a minimalist-techno safari on wax. We presumed the title referred to some fantasmic new dance craze they were intent on monetizing, but according to AirDrop’s blog, it’s about giraffe sex — which, y'know, even better! To celebrate the track’s release, Soul Clap just dropped this extended mixtape, which delves into the duo’s remix history (including their takes on tracks by Boston mainstays Pat Fontes and Tim Ryan) and also offers a sneak peek at the next Soul Clap release, “die Ente” (“the Duck”), which we'll go ahead and presume is about fowl play.
